Keith McCord ReportingThe Rolling Stones are coming back to Utah, in fact, they'll perform here every week this summer! Every Friday and Saturday night, from now through November, the Clark Planetarium presents the Rolling Stones larger than life-- on the IMAX screen!
Shot on location in Italy, Germany and England, it is vintage Rolling Stones. On the Clark Planetarium Imax theatre screen it's Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and the rest, five stories tall. Shot in 1990, Jagger says the film puts you right on stage.
Mick Jagger: "I was kind of interested in doing it in this kind of format so that you'd really feel like you were there, and get a completely different feel for it."
The film has played in IMAX theaters around the world for about 14-years, but since the Clark Theatre is the newest, the folks here decided to make it part of the "Clark After Dark" series.
Today they held a preview for invited guests and the media. Long-time Stones' fans agree with Mick...
Jayceen Walker: "I absolutely love it. I think the Rolling Stones it is so cool. Five-stories tall, 75 feet wide, with the great sound is absolutely amazing!"
Jodi Reece: “I have seen them three times live and this is like seeing them live again.”
At $12 a ticket it’s a pretty good bargain compared to live concert prices, which are into the hundreds of dollars. With dozens of camera angles and a 12,000 watt sound system, you do feel like you're right there.
Jim Erickson, IMAX Threatre MGR.: "They look a little younger, but The Rolling Stones are timeless. The group is definitely timeless. Their music is timeless...my word, why not enjoy it now like you used to."
The Stones hit the Clark IMAX screen beginning this Friday, at 10pm.
